The Kinship 2019
Cask Type: Refill Hogshead
Beautiful notes of sea breezes, drying freshly cut peat, and sun-bleached seaweed. At this age, it’s in its absolute prime. Stunning notes of oak-smoked toffee and marzipan introduce themselves onto the senses. Heather moor fires, salt-encrusted sails, bracken with a rare dash of pepper and lemon. It’s elegant and succulent without a hint of harshness.
